Sauvignon Venezia Giulia IGT
Grown in the perfectly manicured vineyards of Gradisca d’Isonzo alongside the Isonzo river and, in gravelly soil, rich in minerals caressed by marine breezes and cooler Bora winds. After harvest, the grapes are cryomacerated for twenty-four to thirty-six hours, to enhance varietal characteristics, then the grapes are soft pressed; the must is cold-decanted and fermented in stainless steel tanks before bottling in late April. A classic Sauvignon featuring a nose of peach and bell pepper.
